Enjoying a surprise gift from a surprise visit from Jake of while I prepare for tonight’s class here at Magic Bear.

Jake, a home brewer now popping out commercial collaborations dropped off some goodies, but his “Nothing Else But Strata” collab with was what I was most excited to try as I love singular hop showcases.

It poured a bright golden straw with a slight haze without being opaque. A white spritzy head formed that presented a citrusy and tropical aroma with a subtle sweet hint.

Soft and slightly creamy on the palate, there was only a faint malt presence with the taste of delicate white bread that requested “no crusts please!” The perfect canvas to showcase a singular hop varietal. To me, the strata came off as a sweet tangerine with a touch of both tropical and stone fruit. As if plucking out a tangerine segment from a fruit salad that was nestled next to some peach and pineapple.

The aftertaste provided a quick appearance of bitterness to help balance things out. A little grassy on the retro provided a refreshing characteristic.

Finding complexity within simplicity is always a surprise indeed. At 5% this could be dangerous. Thanks Jake! Keep killing it 🔥
